Steelpreacher was founded in 2001 by Preacher after splitting-up his old band called “Claymore”. Preacher wanted to play raw old school heavy metal in the vein of Motörhead, WASP, Saxon, AC/DC and ACCEPT. No keyboards, no commercial attitude, just spikes, leather, beer and HEAVY METAL.


What has started as a idea for a solo-project, soon became a real band when MU (ex- “Claymore”) and a few weeks later Hendrik Beerkiller (ex- “Thorns of Sephiroth”) joined the “band”.


The song writing began immediately. All the songs were written for 2 guitars, even though there was no 2nd guitarist found yet. After only 9 months as a band, the recording of the first album “Route 666” began in a rehearsal-room. Even though it´s poor sound, the album made a huge impact in the underground scene.


After the recording of “Route 666” the band began to realize that the manning of the band seemed to be perfect as a trio and the band started to develop its own unique sound. The songs became much rawer, also stronger hard rock and epic influences can be heard as well.



In 2004 the band recorded their 2nd album called “Start raising hell” which meant a quantum leap in the band’s sound, song writing and cover artwork. This album finally made Steelpreacher a known name in the underground.


On festivals like “Thrash till Death”, “Metal Cruise”, “X-Mas Metal Meeting”, Ultima Ratio”, “Kutten4ever” and the “Summernight Open Air” the band made itself a name as a true Hellraiser, playing together with bands like Sodom, Wizard, Stormwarrior, Piledriver, Gun Barrel and Desaster.



In May 2008 the bands 3rd album called “Drinking with the devil” has been released. Beside 10 tracks, the album contains the first videos of the band “Hell bent for beer” as well as a Making of. The album became Demo of the month in Germanys “Rock Hard” magazine.



After playing in Germany and other countries all over Europe, Steelpreacher enjoyed more and more awareness and popularity in the Heavy Metal world, headlining most of the smaller festivals.


The 2011 released 4th full-length album “Hellraiser” (Mastered by Arne Lakenmacher and Kai Hansen) again raised the bar even higher making a big impact in the metal scene.
